The Oregon Brewers Festival is not a ticketed event, and there is no admission charge to enter the festival grounds. In order to consume beer or cider, you purchase a tasting package for $20 that includes a 2019 souvenir tasting mug and 10 tasting tokens (mugs are available on their own for $10 and tokens are $1 apiece). Patrons pay four tokens for a full 12 oz mug of beer or cider, or one token for a 3 oz taste. Additional tokens are $1 apiece. The purchase of mugs and tokens is made on-site (with the exception of a handful of places that sell them locally up to two weeks prior, including Cascade Brewing Barrel House, the Lodge at Cascade Brewing, Deschutes Brewery in the Pearl District and Belmont Station).

Cash or Credit?

The mug/token sales booth is Cash Only and does not accept credit cards or checks. The festival does provide eight ATM machines on premise.

Minors Welcome

Minors are welcome all hours of the festival with a parent. Parents of minors between the ages of 14 and 20 will be required to sign a form acknowledging the responsibility of preventing children from consuming alcohol and the penalties for the parent and child.

No Pets Allowed

For the safety and happiness of our furry friends, and for venue cleanliness, please leave your pets comfortably at home. Service animals are welcome.


The Oregon Brewers Festival provides an opportunity to sample dozens of craft beer styles from craft brewers and cider makers. The event also offers a Meet the Brewer area, a Brewer Dunk Tank, beer-related vendors, homebrewing demonstrations, games, and an assortment of food vendors. The Crater Lake Soda Garden presents complimentary handcrafted soda for minors and designated drivers.

Safe Ride Home

The Oregon Brewers Festival encourages responsible drinking and urges patrons to get a Safe Ride Home. You can get up to $20 savings on taxi rides and up to $5 savings on TNC rides. Posters with a scannable QR code will be displayed during the Oregon Brewers Festival at Waterfront Park. Riders can access the link to the taxi discount and the TNC promo code through the QR code. We also encourage you to take Tri-Met; the MAX Light Rail has a station one block from the main festival entrance. Attendees who ride bikes can park them for free in the Hopworks Urban Brewery secure bike corral.


The Oregon Brewers Festival was founded in 1988 as an opportunity to expose the public to microbrews at a time when the craft brewing industry was just getting off the ground. Today, that industry has flourished, with more than 7,000 craft breweries in America, and another 1,000 expected to open this year. The economic impact of the Oregon Brewers Festival on the local economy is annually around $20 million. Cheers!
